If I change the battery in my BMW does it need to be reprogrammed?

I have a 2012 BMW 520d. The battery is the original and would not start the car after not being used for two weeks. It's fine when I use the car regularly. Is this a job I can do myself, or does the battery need to be programmed?

Yes, the battery will need reprogramming. This is normally done at your local BMW dealership. I have attached a link that explains the reason
